Acting Governor of Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako, who was previously head of Sakhalin, said that he will support the request of the deputies of the Sakhalin region to Russian President Vladimir Putin on appointment of the acting head of the island region.

The Sakhalin regional Duma on 30 November decided to appeal to Putin about the appointment of acting Governor of the region.

«I can only support the decision of the Sakhalin deputies to appeal to the President on the appointment of acting. This is certainly important, because now the region must adopt the budget, you need to make other decisions. Of course, the region may not be without a Governor, you need to continue a regional programme, who are there. Ahead of the winter, it difficult on Sakhalin island, with its climate challenges. I am also sure to appeal to the leadership of the country, so that these decisions were taken in the near future,» said Kozhemyako told reporters.

In the Sakhalin region there is no acting Governor for two months. Oleg Kozhemyako, who led the region for more than two years, in September, Putin appointed acting head of the Primorsky territory.
